What’s the difference between an elopement a micro wedding?
A micro wedding usually involves up to a maximum of about 20-30 guests, including close family members and a select few friends. This is different from an elopement, which involves only the couple and wedding officiant, possibly a witness depending on the state. A micro wedding in Lake Tahoe is perfect for those who are looking to celebrate with close friends and family without having to spend a lot on a large wedding. You still get the party, as most of the decorations can be DIY’d.
